Prolonged sitting work, work on computers and continuous household work led to it. It is a degenerative disease which affects the vertebrae of the spine. In Ayurvedic texts many diseases symptoms correlated with it like Manayasthamba, vishwachi etc. In the current paper we are discussing case details of a patient who came to our hospital for treatment.
